Introducing a new 3-mile walking route option! Both the 3-mile and historic 20-mile walk route begin and end on Boston Common, have the same rolling start time, and support the same incredible cause. The only difference is the distance!
All participants will receive their own personal fundraising page for the Walk for Hunger after registration and the money raised are critical to helping hungry people in Massachusetts access and afford. There is no fundraising minimum for this event, but we encourage all participants to strive to raise the minimum fundraising goal of $250.
Check-in tents on Boston Common open at 6:00am - 9:30am. Registered walkers can check-in and pick up their t-shirts and "walking papers". Any cash or check donations that you have with you can be given to the volunteers at these tents.
All walkers must register to participate. Day-of registration tents will open on Boston Common at 6am-10am. All participants are strongly encouraged to register in advance online (t-shirt sizes not guaranteed for day-of registrants)
The official start of both walk routes is at 8:30am. The starting line will be open from 8:30am-9:30am. Any walkers who arrive after 9:30 will be asked to head to checkpoint one or two to start. This is to ensure that you are able to complete the course before the end of the event at 6pm to ensure a safe experience.
The Walk for Hunger is a rain or shine event. Be prepared to have fun:
